The family of Prophet T.B Joshua has requested the active participation of the Lagos State government during the burial of the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

This appeal was made known to Governor Sanwo-Olu by the widow, Evelyn after a condolence visit to the family on Wednesday, June 9, 2021.

Though the burial program has not been announced, she said the family would need the presence and support of the state government during the burial.

She described the death of her husband as an act of God.

“What happened is an act of God. There is a time for everything. It didn’t come to me as a surprise. I appreciate your coming,” she said.

Commissioner for Home Affairs, Anofiu Olanrewaju Elegushi, who represented the governor during the condolence visit, presented an official letter signed by the governor to the family and the church.

“We are here to condole with your family and the church over the death of Prophet T. B. Joshua.

“We are here to show our sympathy and to also offer our own prayers for the family. That’s why we visited SCOAN today,” Elegushi said.

Venerable Ezekiel Oluwadare of Chapel of Christ Our Light, Alausa, while praying for the deceased family during the visit, described Prophet T. B. Joshua as a great man of God, who would be missed by all.

Oluwadare also described the late prophet as “a philanthropist, the Jesus of the time, as well as a man loved by all and who abided by the Federal Government’s rules of COVID-19 during the lockdown.”

He prayed that the Almighty God would grant the family of the late prophet and SCOAN the fortitude to bear the loss.
